"Petrol/Gas" at 19p a litre?


I was intrigued to see that British scientists are refining a hydrogen based fuel that can run in existing cars in place of the conventional petrol/gas.

They believe that they can finalise the development within three years!

Apparently this fuel could also be used as a replacement for exisiting aircraft fuel too.

What the scientists at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, the Oxford University and University College London have found is a way of densely packing hydrogen into tiny beads which can be pumped or poured like petrol/gas.

At the present time it is thought that this new fuel would cost around 19p litre although cynics are already pointing out that governments would probably tax it at a rate which wouldn't save the motorist much money!

So many negative people around!

Let's have a joke;- I have rented a car at the flat rate of 12 cents a mile. In an effort to cut down the mileage charge I back up every place. Woody Allen
